{title:Description}
{ p 4 4 2}
{cmd:mira} computes Rubin's (1987) measures for Multiple Imputation (MI) regression
analysis using numbered datasets. For example, pretend that you have the following
datasets generated by some MI procedure: imp1.dta, imp2.dta, etc. Then {cmd:mira}
runs the regression command in each dataset up to dataset {cmd:m} (default is 5)
and analyzes the results using Rubin's formulas.
{ p 4 4 2}
In case that all the MIs are included in one dataset, {cmd:var} option should be
used to indicate the name of variable that describes the number of imputation.
{ p 4 4 2}
Finally, {cmd:mira} reports the arithmetic (simple) and geometric r2's, along with the
number of groups, and sample periods, whenever the information is available.

{p 4 8 2}{cmd:. mira "reg y x1 x2" using imp, m(10)}{p_end}
{p 4 8 2}{cmd:. mira "reg y x1 x2" using imp, m(5) var(impnum)}{p_end}
